Abstract
Techniques for non-invasive biomedical imaging include nuclear magnetic resonance, ultrasound, positron emission tomography, x-ray computed to- mography, and optical transillumination. Each of these methods has dif- ferent advantages and limitations and has found particular applications in medicine. Optical imaging of tissue offers the potential of a non-invasive diagnostic with non-ionizing radiation and the possibility of using spectro- scopic properties to distinguish tissue type and probe metabolic function.
